PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

-Pauly B.

My uncle found this garage for me to fix my old Hyundai Accent,the guy Brock the was really great with helping me and my Uncle fix our car at a decent quote. They really fixed up my car, it has been running smooth since last month. The timing belt work they have done in my car was really good. I couldn?t have asked for a better garage or service. If you have a car that needs to be fixed, Brock at Jersey Auto Repair is your guy.


-Rukhsar S.

...Brock and his crew looked into the issues my car was having and quickly diagnosed the problem. Brock took the time to explain the issue to me, and wasted no time getting the parts to get it back on the road. These guys saved me a lot of money and headaches, I'll definitely be bringing all my vehicles to them from now on.


-Eric D.

Excellent work and great value from Eric, Brock and the rest of the team. Along with honesty, integrity and excellence in service, I fully recommend Jersey Auto Repair for service on any vehicle. I've been a customer for nearly 30 years and I will never go anywhere else.


-Stephen M.

Always professional and very honest.


-Ron S.

Visited the shop today morning, after another mechanic did not show up. Guys fixed my car right away, on the spot, and did not charge anything for that! (While another mechanic said upfront he would charge 60 USD). They have also checked the general state of the car and provided some useful tips. Very reliable and very customer friendly!


-Magda G.L.

Friendly, honest service.


-Pete L.

-Karen S.

Excellent customer service. Eric and Brock always helpful and very professional.


-Aparna C.

The local shop. Awesome service, honest assessments.....because really, that is what everyone wants when you have to take your car to a mechanic.


-Lillian S.

Honest and friendly shop. I was having some trouble with my BMW which was acting up for some time. I finally decided to take it to a garage and chose Jersey Auto Repair. I'm glad I did, they diagnosed the problem right away and called me to give me an estimate on the repair costs before beginning the work. They even fixed my rear brakes which I knew were sticking but didn't mention to them when I brought it in. Emergency brake actually works now. I've been back a couple times for regular maintenance stuff and couldn't be more glad. The owner goes out of his way to make sure the customer is happy. They do great work at a really fair price. I would definitely recommend.


-Stan N.

Great to see you guys on Facebook! I wouldn't take my car anywhere else!


-Diane F.

Thank you Eric for providing us with Excellent Service! Always a pleasure to do business with you!
